It was a Halloween mystery in Fort Collins—the entire stock of Count Chocula at two Albertsons disappeared, leaving countless Coloradoans without their chocolate fix in their morning cereal. The perpetrator—craft brewer Sean Nook of Black Bottle Brewery—bought out the two stores, purchasing 40 pounds of cereal. Count Chocula will join the ranks at Black Bottle in a line of breakfast cereal flavored beer. Past creations include beers flavored Golden Grahams, Reese’s Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch with plans for a St. Patty’s Day edition using Lucky Charms.

    After a weekend of drinking, there’s nothing we enjoy more than a Sunday morning bottomless brunch. From Belgium waffles to eggs benedict, there’s always so much to munch on. Still, there are restaurants that specialize specifically in the bottomless booze department, something we believe is the most significant factor when choosing a brunch spot. We’ve scouted out the most sacred of boozy brunches in select cities so that you can bypass the research yourself. Like we always say, the best detox is a retox.

    The End of the World As We Know It

    Beer / October 25, 2014 / No Comments.

    A team of brewers is claiming that they have reached “the end of beer” with their newest creation—The End of History. BrewDog, located in Aberdeenshire, Scotland was started in 2007 by two friends who were tired of the industrialized, uninteresting beers flooding the market. This brewery is known for more than just good craft beer. They pride themselves on experimenting with extreme ABV brews and some equally outlandish marketing and advertising.

    We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:

    1. Clay Aiken for Congress: The former American Idol star is running for congress in the second congressional district of North Carolina. We want to raise a glass to this “Measure of a Man”—hopefully the entrepreneurial entertainer can make it through the heated race.
    1. Lauren Conrad gets a haircut: The queen of The Hills chopped off her beautiful long locks that we’ve all looked at in envy. We might need to mull over her new hair-do with a cocktail or two.
    1. Pasta Please: Count down to World Pasta Day this Saturday for a carb-loading celebration—as if we needed another reason to drink wine.
    1. MLS says “see ya”: The regular season for Major League Soccer comes to an end this Sunday. If you’re planning to watch, we suggest sitting on your couch, relaxing, and (most definitely) drinking.
    1. Nor’easter is over: After being bombarded with terrible weather this past week, many parts of the country are finally seeing the light. Celebrate by cracking open a few brews and soaking in some newfound sunlight.
